Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Huckleberry Hunting (Pumping Chantey)
A version of Huckleberry Hunting can also be found in Bill Doerflinger's SONGS OF THE SAILOR AND LUMBERMAN, which Hugill also refers to. I've always suspected that the Huckleberry verses came from Maine but I can't seem to find a reference to nail it down; it's not in Minstrelsy of Maine, nor anything I have of Sandy Ives, or Creighton.
